Cupcake, Cupcakes, Cupcakes!
Recently we got a book out at the library called Tina Cocolina. This book is about a cupcake who is trying to find her topping. I must admit that it is not well written, nor is the content particularly good, but for some reason it captured Bunny’s imagination! She has thought about all the details of this book. She has even drawn a picture of Tina and made up a story with both of them in it! 🙂
So I told her that she could earn a cupcake badge! She was SO excited about it. The goals to earn the badge were that she needed to read a book (or I read it to her), make cupcakes, and write a report. She did all of these things really well and I think that there was alot of good learning that happened! I was happy about that because this was a test to see if my idea for next years school will work. Here is what we did for our cupcake badge:

What a great learning experience for Bunny! Congratulations to you for taking her interest and running with it!! “Follow the child”, and with a little guidance from you she learned so many new things 🙂 Well done!
